  • information governance (p. 1): "Information Governance" as used in this Commentary means an organization's coordinated, inter-disciplinary approach to satisfying information compliance requirements and managing information risks while optimizing information value. As such, Information Governance encompasses and reconciles the various legal and compliance requirements and risks addressed by different information-focused disciplines, such as records and information management ("RIM"), data privacy, information security, and e-discovery. Understanding the objectives of these disciplines allows functional overlap to be leveraged (if synergistic); coordinated (if operating in parallel); or reconciled (if in conflict). The position of The Sedona Conference is that Information Governance should involve a top-down, overarching framework, informed by the information requirements of all information stakeholders that enable an organization to make decisions about information for the good of the overall organization and consistent with senior management's strategic directions.
